Synopsis

Emphasising human-scale, local, sustainable alternatives to globalised industry, Sulak Sivaraksa offers a way to restructure our economy on Buddhist principles and on a basis that will promote personal development.Based on decades of thought and writing Sivaraksa outlines how measuring economic success by GDP (Gross Domestic Product) could be replaced by GNH (Gross National Happiness). It examines globalisation from a Buddhist perspective, arguing that healing the planet starts by creating sustainability at the individual and global levels.
